Apologies for resurrecting a thread from the dead but has anyone tried retrofitting Active Cruise Control? I have normal cruise control factory fitted.

This is almost impossible because an activation code is needed.

hi guys, sorry to revive an old post.
I just bought an F30 from BMW with a premium selection warranty (CPO in US) in Germany.
I am still waiting on the dealer to do the inspection, but as soon as I get the car I would like to install the CC in it, as it only has the LIM button.
My biggest concern is the 2y warranty, as I do not want to use it.
Would the dealer be able to detect that I have added the CC ?
I am planning on removing the CC and the required coding every time I go to the dealer, but I am not sure if BMW will be able to still detect that I had fiddled with the coding and VO.

Anyone has any idea about this?
I will probably try to code a few more things, and before going to the dealer to remove everything added by me just so they can not find a reason to cancel my warranty. On my E46 I know I was able to just use an initial backup to code the car back, but I am not sure if it is the same for the F30.

Thanks.

Removing everything before turning in to the dealer is absolutely ok.
I turn it in with coding now, because I don't want to hassle with it. He'll not notice such a little change.

Danke.
I was just a bit scared.
Bought the car specially for the premium selection warranty (also price was a bit lower than privates in my region) and the first six months I have also the no hassle warranty.
I really don't want to loose it, as it's nice to have
Coming from someone who is in Germany (and probably german) is really helpful.
Car is awesome, but I really want the CC. Who orders HUD, NBT, leather and connected but not CC?
I've already got my cable and I'm looking now for Esys (if you have a working one I would be very happy if you can pm me with a link) and tomorrow I'm supposed to pick up my car with a new TUV.

Has anyone tried installing CC on an Msport steering wheel? Is this the same procedure as the one shown in the PDF?
